This is a question I get asked a lot by pet sitters, dog walkers, dog trainers, pet groomers and dog daycare owners: “Kristin, which pet business book should I read first?”
My answer always depends upon where the person asking the question is in their pet business journey.
Before I answer this question for you, dear blog reader, I want to first say that even though some of these book titles below have pet sitting and dog walking in the title, they are all very much relevant and applicable to all kinds of pet businesses!
I’ve had many pet groomers, dog trainers, dog daycare owners and pet photographers all tell me they’ve gained a ton of value from the pet sitting and dog walking titled books!
